As an artist, it is my job document what exists in the world around me. Right now (early 2010), the social networking sites are king......so I created this mixed media artwork, based upon a scary picture that I saw on Myspace.   <object width=`560` height=`340` data=`http://www.youtube.com/v/7aa9oUzARN0&hl=en_US&fs=1&` type=`application/x-shockwave-flash`>  <param name=`allowFullScreen` value=`true` />  <param name=`allowscriptaccess` value=`always` />  <param name=`src` value=`http://www.youtube.com/v/7aa9oUzARN0&hl=en_US&fs=1&` />  <param name=`allowfullscreen` value=`true` />  </object>  I took a mixed media approach in creating this work. 1.) Pencil- I used the pencil to sketch the initial pose. I do not do any shading while working with the pencil (in step one) 2.) Illustration Marker- Prismacolor and Chartpak Ad markers allow me to put down layers of color quickly. These markers leave transparent marks of color, similar to watercolor paint and often, their vibrancy can be seen through layers of translucent color (added later). 3.) Color Pencils- The fine tip of color pencils allow me to make marks with extreme precision. I use prismacolor color pencils because they blend extremely well and are compatible with oil paint. 4.) Oil Paint- The most versatile medium. Oil paint can be applied in thick `impasto` style or in thin transparent glazes. In this case, I tried to finish my work......but I decided that I needed to make a few changes. 5.) In order to make those changes, I let my work dry, then scanned it, then opened it up in.... 6.) Photoshop (And Paint Shop Pro 9)- THese two computer programs allow me to do digital collage and edit/refine my work. In this case, I changed the posture of the character. 7.) Print- On SPECIAL paper (hit the link) 8.) Color pencil- to bring out the tones (again) and prep the paper for oil paint (yes, it is a good primer). Also the color from the color pencils mix with the oil paint, which creates a cool effect. 9.) Oil Paint- Finishing touches 10.) Scan 11.) Save as a PNG file....so that I can use this character multiple times. -Merrill Kazanjian</p>  <!-- @import url(http://www.google.com/cse/api/branding.css); -->  <div class=`cse-branding-right` style=`background-color:#000000;color:#FFFFFF`>  <div class=`cse-branding-form`><form id=`cse-search-box` action=`http://www.google.com/cse`>  <div><input name=`cx` type=`hidden` value=`partner-pub-6730899040960500:xnfspl1lg7u` /> <input name=`ie` type=`hidden` value=`ISO-8859-1` /> <input name=`q` size=`31` type=`text` /> <input name=`sa` type=`submit` value=`Search` /></div>  </form></div>  <div class=`cse-branding-logo`><img src=`http://www.google.com/images/poweredby_transparent/poweredby_000000.gif` alt=`Google` /></div>  <div class=`cse-branding-text`>Custom Search</div>  </div>  <p>  <script type=`text/javascript`><!--  google_ad_client = `pub-6730899040960500`;    /* 336x280, created 2/2/10 */    google_ad_slot = `4181428218`;    google_ad_width = 336;    google_ad_height = 280;  // --></script>  <script src=`http://pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/show_ads.js` type=`text/javascript`></script>  </p> Illustration Markers: Prismacolor vs. AD Chartpak- A Comparison by Merrill Kazanjian. <p>  <script type=`text/javascript`><!--  google_ad_client = `pub-6730899040960500`;                        /* 728x15, created 2/3/10 */                        google_ad_slot = `1049141337`;                        google_ad_width = 728;                        google_ad_height = 15;  // --></script>  <script src=`http://pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/show_ads.js` type=`text/javascript`></script>  </p>  <p style=`text-align: left;`><span style=`font-size: large;`><span style=`color: #c0c0c0;`>In this article, I will compare the two most popular brands of illustration markers; Prismacolor and Ad Chartpak. I am an artist, a teacher and a professional illustrator and I have been using both Prismacolor and Ad Chartpak markers for many years. The subscribers of my <a href=`http://youtube.com/kazanjianm`>youtube channel</a> have seen me depend upon illustration markers in my work, and I have recieved many questions about the artistic capabilities of illustration markers. I have noticed that there is not a lot of information on the internet regarding this topic, so I decided to contribute my perspective. As you continue to read this article, you will become aware of each brand`s strengths and weaknesses, so that you could make an educated decision, if you should choose to purchase some. </span></span></p>  <p> </p>  <p style=`text-align: center;`><strong><span style=`font-size: x-large;`>ABOUT THE ARTISTIC MEDIUM OF ILLUSTRATION MARKERS</span></strong></p>  <p style=`text-align: left;`><span style=`font-size: x-large;`><span style=`font-size: large;`>I choose to use Illustration Markers in my work, because they are fast, portable and mixable with other media. I was trained as an oil painter but my busy lifestyle forced me to reconsider my approach to art making. I stumbled upon illustration markers when I visited a friends studio. I quickly learned to think about illustration markers as a descendant (or a relative) of watercolor paint. Both are means to apply transparent color. Once an artist practices with illustration markers, and learns the nuances of the medium, he/she can get sophisticated in a fraction of the time that it would take to create a work in watercolor. </span></span></p>  <p style=`text-align: left;`><span style=`font-size: x-large;`><span style=`font-size: large;`><br /></span></span></p>  <p style=`text-align: center;`><span style=`font-size: x-large;`><span style=`font-size: large;`><strong><span style=`font-size: x-large;`>VIDEO</span></strong></span></span></p>  <p style=`text-align: center;`> </p>  <p>  <object width=`425` height=`344` data=`http://www.youtube.com/v/TP8OtOyf6uE&hl=en&fs=1` type=`application/x-shockwave-flash`>  <param name=`allowFullScreen` value=`true` />  <param name=`allowscriptaccess` value=`always` />  <param name=`src` value=`http://www.youtube.com/v/TP8OtOyf6uE&hl=en&fs=1` />  <param name=`allowfullscreen` value=`true` />  </object>  </p>  <p style=`text-align: center;`><span style=`font-size: x-large;`><span style=`font-size: large;`><strong><span style=`font-size: x-large;`>TIPS FROM VIDEO<br /></span></strong></span></span></p>  <p><span style=`font-size: large;`>1.) Markers- When you use illustration markers, think of yourself as a watercolor artist. I say this because illustration markers enable you with the means to apply transparent color and layer it multiple times. But there is a trade off in using illustration markers (AND ONE THAT I AM DEFINITELY WILLING TO MAKE) The colors are pre mixed and you are limited in creating tones (light and dark values) and chromas (range of the intensity of color) in your work. You will see in the video demonstration that the markers do not blend together like wet paint. There are simple ways to compensate for the lack of mixability.<br /></span></p>  <p><span style=`font-size: large;`>2.) Special Markers- There are two different types of special illustration markers; Blender markers and grays. I know....I just said that there is no blending. The blender marker is a little deceptive. It is simply a marker without color in it. It is comprised of the fluid that the marker is mixed in. When it is applied on paper, the colors will bleed together. You will see during my demonstration that there is a big difference between bleeding and blending.  The warm and cool gray markers are used to build tones. Usually, there are ten warm grays and ten cool grays in a complete marker set. Ten is the darkest tone and one is the lightest.</span></p>  <p><span style=`font-size: large;`>3.) Paper- In order to use Illustration Markers to their full capacity, you will need Bleedproof paper. It is specifically made for markers, and it prevents markers from running.</span></p>  <p> </p>  <p style=`text-align: left;`> </p>  <p style=`text-align: left;`> </p>  <p style=`text-align: left;`><span style=`font-size: x-large;`><span style=`font-size: large;`><br /></span></span></p>  <p style=`text-align: center;`><span style=`font-size: large;`><span style=`color: #000000;`><strong><span style=`font-size: x-large;`>ABOUT PRISMACOLOR AND AD CHARTPAK</span></strong><br /></span></span></p>  <p><span style=`font-size: large;`><span style=`color: #000000;`><br /></span></span></p>  <p style=`text-align: center;`><span style=`font-size: large;`><span style=`color: #000000;`><strong>AN OVERALL COMPARISON OF THE TWO TOP BRANDS</strong><br /></span></span></p>  <p style=`text-align: left;`> </p>  <p style=`text-align: center;`><img title=`Prismacolor vs. Ad Chartpak Illustration Markers` src=`http://iown.website/bx/_files/113images/nli_big/illustration_marker_comparison.jpg` alt=`Comparison of Prismacolor vs Chartpak Ad Illustration Markers` width=`574` height=`443` /></p>  <p style=`text-align: left;`><span style=`font-size: large;`>Both brands offer a wide range of colors and both are quality products. I use both brands when I work (as evidenced in my <a href=`http://youtube.com/kazanjianm`>videos</a>). I currently have a slight preferance toward AD Chartpak, but when I first started using illustration markers, I preferred the superior control of Prismacolor.  It is a matter of preferance.....Power (AD Chartpak) versus Accuracy (Prismacolor). The best solution is to use them together. <br /></span></p>  <p style=`text-align: center;`><span style=`font-size: large;`><strong><span style=`font-size: x-large;`>MY RECOMMENDATIONS</span></strong><br /></span></p>  <p style=`text-align: left;`> </p>  <p style=`text-align: left;`><span style=`font-size: large;`>If you choose to experiment with illustration markers in your work. I would recommend that you purchase Bleedproof paper (shown below). I stress this point if you wish to purchase AD Chartpak markers (You could get away with using regular paper with the Prismacolor markers). I would also recommend for you to purchase a set based upon your interests (I will provide you with lots of possibilities below). For instance, most of my work deals with the human figure, so a set with a lot of flesh tones makes the most sense for a person like me. I do use all of the markers that I have (OVER 500!!!!) but I use 100 flesh tones out of the 500 eighty percent of the time! Below I will list all of the possibilities. If you have a question, leave me a comment (at the bottom) and I will be sure to respond.  </span></p>  <p style=`text-align: left;`><span style=`font-size: large;`><br /></span></p>  <p style=`text-align: center;`><span style=`font-size: large;`><strong><span style=`font-size: x-large;`>PAPER</span></strong><br /></span></p>  <form action=`http://www.dpbolvw.net/interactive` method=`get`>   <table style=`width: 600px;` border=`0` cellspacing=`0` cellpadding=`5`>  <tbody>  <tr>  <td width=`10%` valign=`top`><img src=`http://www.dick-blick.com/items/106/01/10601-1153-2ww-m.jpg` border=`0` alt=`Borden & Riley Paris Bleedproof Paper For Pens` /></td>  <td valign=`top`>  <p><strong><span style=`font-size: medium;`>Borden & Riley Paris Bleedproof Paper For Pens</span></strong></p>  <p>If you are purchasing Ad Markers, this is a must.

Sketch 2.) Illustration Markers 3.) Color Pencils and 4.) Oil paint. Sometimes I add even more steps with Photoshop, but I didnt for this portrait. I wanted to see how far I could push oil paint as a medium. I prefer painterly realism to photorealism (photo realistic stuff gets boring.....whats the point of simply reproducing a picture?). I was satisfied with the results, despite my unorthodox approach to making this....(painting? work of art? mixed media?....I dont know what to call it.) The markers were Prismacolor and Chartpak Ad. The color pencils were Prisma and the oil paint was Old Holland, Maimeri, Vasari, Bloxx, Grumbacher and Holbein Colors. I used Liquin as a paint medium. I used Flat, Round and Filbert Brushes and occasionally a fan brush (for delicate blending). This time lapse speed portrait consolidated four hours in to less than four minutes.   <object width=`560` height=`340` data=`http://www.youtube.com/v/u4l2tjDqxsM&hl=en_US&fs=1&` type=`application/x-shockwave-flash`>  <param name=`allowFullScreen` value=`true` />  <param name=`allowscriptaccess` value=`always` />  <param name=`src` value=`http://www.youtube.com/v/u4l2tjDqxsM&hl=en_US&fs=1&` />  <param name=`allowfullscreen` value=`true` />  </object>  </p>  <p> </p>  <p>  <script type=`text/javascript`><!--  google_ad_client = `pub-6730899040960500`;    /* 468x60, created 1/26/10 */    google_ad_slot = `2338749477`;    google_ad_width = 468;    google_ad_height = 60;  // --></script>  <script src=`http://pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/show_ads.js` type=`text/javascript`></script>  </p> The Balding Emo. <p>  <script type=`text/javascript`><!--  google_ad_client = `pub-6730899040960500`;    /* 728x15, created 2/3/10 */    google_ad_slot = `1049141337`;    google_ad_width = 728;    google_ad_height = 15;  // --></script>  <script src=`http://pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/show_ads.js` type=`text/javascript`></script>  </p>  <p>For those of you who dont know.....EMO`s are the dudes known for their melancholy dress code, morbid body language, sad facial expressions and their taste in music.....but most of all, EMO`s are famous for their super floppy, vision impairing hair! Oh look! Heres a fine specimen!....This leads us to a question that perplexes the universe.....Is an EMO still an EMO if he loses his hair? I want to hear your opinion......Post your answers to this question as a text comment or a video response, to enter yourself in this contest. All responses will be judged on humor and originality. Please don`t post anything offensive because we want to make EMO`s smile, not cry! The prize is an illustration of the winner be me, Merrill Kazanjian. As always I will document the process on video and give you a copy for your channel. The deadline for this contest is March 1st, 2010 and the winner will be chosen on March 2nd.......Anyway, heres how I drew the Balding Emo.

Depends on exploitative labor of people under three feet tall. 3.) Could be the cause of the Polar ice caps melting. 4.) Flies without a license and at his own leisure.....while the rest of us get frisked and go through metal detectors before flying. Could the north pole be harboring terrorists? Anyway.....Its the holiday season....so....... I created an artwork of Mr. Santa Claus getting arrested for all of his transgressions. I started out with a pencil drawing (regular #2 pencil. Then I added a layer of marker. I followed the layer of marker with a layer of color pencil. After the color pencil, I added oil paint and liquin. Finally, I scanned the image and did touch ups in Paint Shop Pro 9.

Put your political differences aside and watch artist Merrill Kazanjian merge the faces of our last four Presidents (Barack Obama, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George H.W. Bush. A presidential portrait this is not- it sets the precedent for merging presidents- not ideologically- but aesthetically. I started out by creating a collage / photomontage with digital cut outs and combining them with Photoshop CS3 and Paint Shop Pro 8. Next, I printed on a medium format printer (13 x 17 inches). Next I added a layer of color pencils (prismacolor) and markers (AD and prisma) to fill in the gaps and tie everything together. Finally, I added a layer of oil paint to make it look life like. I added the body of Richard Nixon in his iconic peace pose and ironically the face wound up looking a little bit like a young Nixon (I did not intend this). I call the method that I use, tradigital art. It merges traditional art (2D drawing and painting) with digital possibilities (computer art and digital photography).</p><p>Photoshop is the Gold Standard for Photomanipulation Art</p><form action=`http://www.tkqlhce.com/interactive` method=`get`> <table style=`width: 600px;` border=`0` cellspacing=`0` cellpadding=`5`><tbody><tr><td width=`10%` valign=`top`><img src=`http://drh.img.digitalriver.com/DRHM/Storefront/Company/adbevlus/images/product/detail/CS4/box_photoshop_cs4_150x150.jpg` border=`0` alt=`Photoshop CS4 - License` /></td><td valign=`top`><p><strong><span style=`font-size: medium;`>Photoshop CS4 - License</span></strong></p><p><span style=`font-size: x-small;`>Create powerful images with the professional standard.</span></p><hr /><input name=`pid` type=`hidden` value=`3724826` /> <input name=`aid` type=`hidden` value=`10674112` /> <input name=`cjsku` type=`hidden` value=`Photoshop CS4 - License` /> <input name=`url` type=`hidden` value=`http://store.digitalriver.com/servlet/ControllerServlet?Action=DisplayProductDetailsPage&Locale=en_US&SiteID=adbevlus&productID=108142600` /> <input type=`submit` value=`Buy` /></td></tr></tbody></table></form><p><img src=`http://www.lduhtrp.net/image-3724826-10674112` border=`0` alt=`` width=`1` height=`1` /></p> Mahmoud Ahmedinejad + Kim Jong Il + Hogo Chavez = Hugmedinejong Ill. <p><object width=`425` height=`344` data=`http://www.youtube.com/v/S0Umjur4RS8&hl=en_US&fs=1&` type=`application/x-shockwave-flash`><param name=`allowFullScreen` value=`true` /><param name=`allowscriptaccess` value=`always` /><param name=`src` value=`http://www.youtube.com/v/S0Umjur4RS8&hl=en_US&fs=1&` /><param name=`allowfullscreen` value=`true` /></object>What happens when the faces of three dictators are merged?

But it`s still inspiration so I went with it! True story. -Merrill Kazanjian These are the steps that I took to make this character. (How I made it) 1.) Pencil Drawing 2.) Layer of Prismacolor and AD Markers 3.) Scan with scanner and use Photoshop and Paint Shop Pro 9 to do a digital collage. 4.) Print on to new sheet of paper 5.)

Colored Pencil:</strong></span></p>  <p style=`TEXT-ALIGN: left`><span style=`font-size: medium;`>In this artwork, I did NOT use any oil paint, but lets compare the similarities and differences of the two media.</span></p>  <p style=`TEXT-ALIGN: left`><span style=`font-size: medium;`>Oil paint is applied with a brush rather than with a fine tip. The viscocity of paint allows it to glide on to various surfaces. Colored pencils have a hard tip which pushes in to the surface it is drawing on and leaves its marks through friction. It is easier to make shapes than lines with oil paint. Often, a paint brush will run out of paint before a line is complete or an unsteady hand will accidentally alter the thickness of the line that you are trying to make. Colored pencil is superior in this one extremely important area. It creates lines accurately and almost never runs out of color (line duration). It is superior to oil paint for precise `detail work`, such as working around the eyes, shaping teeth or creating an accurate rendering of the corners of the mouth. Oil Paint`s greatest attribute is its mixability and its ability to be layered. The possibility of layering paint makes oil painting a more natural pick for portrait artists since our skin is comprised of thin transparent layers. It is a lot easier to mix precise colors with oil paint (very important in portraiture) than it is with colored pencil. Finally, there is a range of opacities (transparent to opaque) that are possible with oil painting while colored pencil is limited to one blended layer.</span></p>  <p style=`TEXT-ALIGN: left`><span style=`font-size: medium;`>My hope while I worked on this artwork was to essentially turn the color (pigment) in colored pencil in to paint. I knew that the pigment in oil paint was identical to the pigment used in color pencil but the binder is different. The Prismacolor colored pencils which I use are mixed with wax (other colored pencils are mixed with vegetable oil but they are not nearly as good). Wax has been an ingredient used in the production of oil paint for centuries, so in this video, I decided to mix 1,) oil paint, 2.) colored pencil and 3.) mineral spirits together. I have since tweaked my process even more, but this video/article will show the possibilities of re-working the wax based pigment in color pencil.

I wasnt in the mood to start a new drawing today so I decided to experiment and give new life to an old drawing. Jackson Pollock said over 50 years ago- New needs need new techniques. And the modern artists have found new ways and new means of making their statements... the modern painter cannot express this age, the airplane, the atom bomb, the radio, in the old forms of the Renaissance or of any other past culture. I feel that more artists should try tradigital art. (That is, art that uses both traditional and digital media). I have witnessed many artists who are threatened by technology but the truth is that computers have created more possibilities for artists.<strong> Step 5-</strong> Finish the figure digitally.</span></p>  <p><span style=`font-size: small;`> </span>   <object width=`425` height=`344` data=`http://www.youtube.com/v/3dH4Xj10c2I&hl=en_US&fs=1&` type=`application/x-shockwave-flash`>  <param name=`allowFullScreen` value=`true` />  <param name=`allowscriptaccess` value=`always` />  <param name=`src` value=`http://www.youtube.com/v/3dH4Xj10c2I&hl=en_US&fs=1&` />  <param name=`allowfullscreen` value=`true` />  </object>  <script type=`text/javascript`><!--  google_ad_client = `pub-6730899040960500`;    /* 468x60, created 1/26/10 */    google_ad_slot = `2338749477`;    google_ad_width = 468;    google_ad_height = 60;  // --></script>  <script src=`http://pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/show_ads.js` type=`text/javascript`></script>  </p> Bob Ross + Pablo Picasso + Chuck Close = ???. <p><object width=`425` height=`344` data=`http://www.youtube.com/v/GHANY8Ik1OI&hl=en_US&fs=1&` type=`application/x-shockwave-flash`><param name=`allowFullScreen` value=`true` /><param name=`allowscriptaccess` value=`always` /><param name=`src` value=`http://www.youtube.com/v/GHANY8Ik1OI&hl=en_US&fs=1&` /><param name=`allowfullscreen` value=`true` /></object>What happens when the faces of art icons Bob Ross, Pablo Picasso and Chuck Close are morphed together.

Step 2- For step two, I am using a computer scissor to cut out the features of the face from various photographs that I have collected. After I cut them out, I digitally juxtapose them over my simple facial sketch. Artists have called this a digital collage or a photo-manipulation, but I like to say that I am Frankensteining the face together. This process has evolved from a need to work faster. My main area of expertise is oil painting but some of my paintings have taken me over a year to complete. In addition to being an artist, I am also a full time teacher and a new father. So free time is truly a luxury; I had to come up with a creative way to do my work and this is one of several techniques that I use. In my opinion, there is no artistic medium that can compete with the surface beauty of an oil painting. Hand made items will always be more beautiful than manufactured ones. I have seen a lot of Digital art that is mechanical and inorganic. But making digital art is a much faster process than making traditional art. I have a lot to say as an artist and not a lot of time to say it, so, for this piece, I am using this digital collage as an underpainting for what I will do later. Step 3- In Step Three, I am lightening the areas that I plan to rework. Step 4- For step four, print at maximum dpi and on the thickest paper that you can fit through your printer Step 5- For step five we will cover the traditional part of tradigital- I am using prismacolor (prisma) pencils and illustration markers and decocolor paint markers. Prismacolor sells great colored pencils. Their covering power is very impressive. Their marks lie somewhere between translucent and opaque. They can be used to mimic scumbling and glazing. In order to glaze mix the color pencil with the prisma marker blender. Decocolor markers have a type of paint inside which is very similar to acrylic paint and has a similar covering power to acrylic paint. Whenever I need to make opaque marks, I use the decocolor markers. Years ago, I would have considered a method such as this, cheating. I no longer feel that way because art is so much more than just drawing. Drawing is a way for an artist to communicate but it is not the only means that an artist could use to communicate. I feel that while this method is unconventional, it has allowed me to work faster and leave a human fingerprint on the artwork that I produce. The digital collage allows me to Frankenstein interesting facial features and come up with new imagery in a manner similar to the cutouts of Pablo Picasso and Romare Bearden. I have made bodies in a very similar manner. It can be even more fun to digitally collage a body together. After I finish making a character, I like to use the character multiple times. Since I took my break from oil painting, exactly a year ago, in December 2007, I have made over 500 different characters. My characters are saved as digital files and are used multiple times in my artistic compositions. A sample of my latest work is at the end of this video.

It was done in 2008 when I had less of a grasp for Photoshop and Paint Shop Pro. I used cut outs (with a scissor), rather than doing that step digitally. Wji;e i feel that I have found better techniques since making this, it is important to acknowledge the techniques that I used in the past.</p>  <p>Here is the video description-</p>  <p>Artist Merrill Kazanjian breaks down how he makes one of his artworks. Merrill had been a teacher for more than seven years and is sharing his artistic processes with the world thanks to youtube! The process is: Step 1: Look for interesting facial features (eyes, noses and mouths; even ears) from different photographs and juxtapose them on a piece of paper. Step 2: Make an oval for the head and paste down the facial features. The eyes should be in the middle of the oval. Step 3: Scan what you have so far and reprint it in color on a separate sheet of paper. In other words, scan it and reprint it so that you work on a flat surface. Step 4: Use Paint Markers and Illustration markers to tie everything together. I used Decocolor and Prismacolor markers for this picture, acrylic paint would work equally well. Whatever you choose, the point of the 4th step is to make everything look smooth.</p>  <p> </p>  <p>  <object width=`425` height=`344` data=`http://www.youtube.com/v/unnHsHps0qY&hl=en_US&fs=1&` type=`application/x-shockwave-flash`>  <param name=`allowFullScreen` value=`true` />  <param name=`allowscriptaccess` value=`always` />  <param name=`src` value=`http://www.youtube.com/v/unnHsHps0qY&hl=en_US&fs=1&` />  <param name=`allowfullscreen` value=`true` />  </object>  </p>  <p>  <script type=`text/javascript`><!--  google_ad_client = `pub-6730899040960500`;        /* 468x60, created 1/26/10 */        google_ad_slot = `2338749477`;        google_ad_width = 468;        google_ad_height = 60;  // --></script>  <script src=`http://pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/show_ads.js` type=`text/javascript`></script>  <script type=`text/javascript`><!--  google_ad_client = `pub-6730899040960500`;        /* 336x280, created 2/2/10 */        google_ad_slot = `4181428218`;        google_ad_width = 336;        google_ad_height = 280;  // --></script>  <script src=`http://pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/show_ads.js` type=`text/javascript`></script>  </p>
